According to ABC News, Pasquale Manfredi, one of Italy’s top 100 most wanted men, used Facebook so often that his hideout was discovered from internet traces. He used Facebook to socialize as well as keep in touch with his fellow no-good-niks. I wonder if he played Mafia Wars? He allegedly had a number of killings under his belt as well as illegally trading military weapons. That sort of thing makes us MW facegamers look like pikers. There’s the real deal right there.

I’m torn between giving two pieces of advice here. So here’s both. 1) If you’re going to be a criminal, don’t use a public social site that police have access to. Duh. And 2) If you’re going to be a criminal, please use a social site to keep in touch with your cronies, so that it makes it easier for law enforcement to find you.

That is all.

Huey, Dewey, and Louis take a visit to "The Big Head Guy"

The Stone Head Mystery resembled the Moai statues of �Easter Island, but unlike its real life counterpart, the mystery of these stone heads are easily solved. If you drop any tribesman on it, they experience a feeling of warmth and peace. But then nothing else happens. Have you noticed that when you drop a child on a villager that the frown they had goes away?

What do they have to do with each other? Continue reading »

Celestial Starstone

The Celestial Starstone, one of the many island mysteries...

Most islands in My Tribe start with either a Starstone or a Moonstone, and both are solved in similar ways. Since Stardust is used for so many things, it would be a shame not to solve this right away.

No doubt by now you’ve already used some stardust on one of your tribesmen. Grab ahold of that that person and drop him on top of the stone. You may have to do it once more until you get a message that says that your tribesman reaches into the hole and touches a mechanism inside.

At that point, you will need to use 3 stardust in rapid succession. The star will look as though its filling up. When its full, the mystery will be unlocked and more stardust will fall on your island!
